Use wireless keyboard to enter luks password

Is it at all possible to be able to use my wireless keyboard(RF) to enter the luks password during start up, rather than open the laptop and use that keyboard every time?

Thank you very much, adding ehci_hcd and usbhid to the list of modules when creating initrd, worked like a charm.
